The CW’s Riverdale finishes up its short 13 episode first season on May 11, 2017 with ‘The Sweet Hereafter.’ Season one episode 12 featured the big reveal of who killed Jason Blossom, with the killer getting his just desserts. The episode also revealed that if it weren’t for Betty, Veronica, Archie, Jughead, and Kevin, Jughead’s father would likely be spending the remainder of his life in jail wrongly convicted of murder. Hopefully, the season one finale will leave viewers feeling satisfied with the outcome of Jason Blossom’s murder investigation while setting up an equally intriguing mystery for the series’ second season. Executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa teased fans can expect a huge twist ending and promised viewers will be left fearing for one of the main characters.
Episode 13 was directed by Lee Toland Krieger from a script by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
